And to round out this crazy fun week of photo posts & send you off into the weekend right, we have for you the sweet Saltwater Farm anniversary shoot of the amazing Margot & Tim!
Margot & Tim are photographers themselves, and I LOVE that because it means they know just how important pictures are & how important it is to make sure that you're not just having your love documented on the wedding day. But over time, as you grow in your marriage and build a life together as well. Because that's the beautiful part. Justin & I had our anniversary pictures done last year & we LOVED the chance to just hold on to one another & document who we've become. Together. We're hoping to have it done again this year. And the year after that! So to all of our past clients out there & the other photographers reading this, I would SO encourage you to do the same...the last pictures you have together should not be on your wedding day! And then if you need somebody to do them, be sure to call us! Ha! :)
Besides really caring about the pictures, the other things that I loved about Margot & Tim were how they balance each other. She's a firecracker and full of life, while he is her calm constant. A due North guiding the way. She's there, always pulling for him. And he's there to hold her up. They laugh together. And fit together. And they are more themselves around each other than they ever are alone. I believe if you really want to get to know who a person is, see who they gave their heart to. And after seeing them together I know, Margot & Tim are our kind of people!
So sit back & welcome in the long weekend right as you....
We have been shooting like CRAZY lately (I guess 'tis the season!), with four shoots last week alone! And we can't wait to show you guys everything, so we decided to make this week kind of a power week of photo posts to get everything up. And I can't think of any better way to kick that off than with the headshots we did recently for the incredibly talented, not to mention gorgeous, Miss Tiffany Farley!
We first met Tiffany when she did a mentoring session with us about a year ago, and she has since become one of our closest & best friends. Tiffany is one of the most insanely gifted & talented portrait photographers I know (seriously, go follow her stuff if you aren't already!) So when she asked us to do the new headshots for her site, we were beyond honored! We met up at a local beach, where we were blessed with the best glory light all evening long!
Before the shoot, Tiffany warned us that she "gets really awkward in front of the camera & doesn't know what to do." And I am here to tell you that she is a LIAR! :) This girl can work it both behind AND in front of the camera like nobody's business. Some girls have all the luck! :)
So sit back, relax & grab a cup of coffee as you....
I first met the adorable Katie Yuen at one of our "Spread the Love" workshops in NYC a few years ago & then again when she helped out on one of our Walk Through a Wedding workshops. Since then, Katie has become someone I'm lucky enough to call a friend. I've watched her finish photo school, get married, and now start her photography business full time. A little while back we were able to get together with her to do one of our Mentoring Sessions + Mini Headshots, to brainstorm where her business should go from here. We created a strategy, set out a next action plan, and laid a path forward. Together. And from what she's told me, she's already tearing through that list we gave her like nobody's business. And I for one, can't wait to see her fly.
Katie is kind, loyal, and a gifted encourager. She is one of those bright shining lights that you just know is going to set the world on fire....and help a ton of people in the process. She stands for the good stuff. All of it. I'm telling you....keep your eye on this one!

Today we have for you THREE times the fun, from this adorable family shoot we did down at the Jersey Shore. Now Justin & I don't normally do family shoots, as we really just specialize in weddings & couples but for these guys we had to make an exception. You see Tiffany & Dan are one of our ALL TIME favorite past couples (like if we had J&M all-star jerseys to give out, they would totally get one!) and we were there for them for their engagement shoot & wedding. Then when they found out they were having triplets we traveled down to PA for both Tiffany's maternity session & then again for the boys' newborn session. These guys have since moved down to Florida (Dan plays in the NFL for Tampa), but when they wrote to see if we could meet up while they were spending a month on vacation at the Shore we knew we had to make it happen!
And boy (oh boy oh boy) am I glad we did! The boys have gotten SO big and are running all over the place! But they are just *such* good kids....so happy & full of fun. I realized through the whole shoot that my cheeks were hurting from smiling so much. And I just feel so incredibly lucky to have now done our fifth shoot with these guys & get to share life with them. Tiffany & Dan, I hope it doesn't even need to be said at this point....but we LOVE you guys! And consider you not just friends, but family! We can't wait til we see you again!
Today we have for you the sweet anniversary shoot of Jenny & Craig! These guys actually came over to London for the Walk Through workshop (more on that to come!) all the way from Wyoming!! So while they were there, we also took the chance for them to get in front of our camera to do an anniversary shoot. We had the best time shooting all over the city with them & getting to know them better! As you can see, they made it easy. We hope you enjoy!
